I open my eyes The cell is flooded with sunlight; the window is a slice of pale blue Dust particles dance in the sparkling light pirouetting in a golden line from the window to the opposite wall of the cell where they seem to converge into shapes It is. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to Simon and Schuster UK Children's and NetGalleyThis was an okay story but I did struggle to stay focused on thisI didn’t really love any of the characters in this book none of them really irritated me but then they didn’t really engender any strong feelings at all I can’t say I really cared what happened to any of them reallyThe storyline in this just didn’t really hold my attention well at all and I wanted to put this down and do something else instead I felt like I was waiting for her to be kidnapped and then other than a couple of shock situations I just wanted her to be found and for the book to be overAs we got towards the end some things were revealed that shed some light on why Robyn had been kidnapped and the information which was being hidden from the public by both her father and another large company I did find this to be the most interesting part of the book but even then I was eager for this to be overThe ending was okay but I wasn’t overly impressed by the little romance that cropped upOverall; slow conspiracy story6 out of 10

Like looking into a kaleidoscope Dad isn't here No one is but meRobyn Knollys Green is an A list celebrity famous for being the daughter of one of the world's most powerful men But not even the paparazzi can find her nowRobyn begins to realise that she.
